Join us at the Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden for Evening Strolls through the Garden on Fridays and Saturdays from 5:30-8:30 p.m. beginning Friday, November 30 through Saturday, December 22, 2018. Conceived by popular demand, Evening Strolls through the Garden offers the public a chance to enjoy the serene Stroll Garden in the winter for the first time ever.
Regular admission fees apply: $4 for adults; free for children 12 and younger. Members of Friends of the Garden and Springfield Sister Cities Association receive free entry by showing their membership card. The Stroll Garden is located within the Springfield Botanical Gardens at Nathanael-Greene/Close Memorial Park, 2400 S. Scenic Ave., Springfield, Mo.
Guests will enjoy soft music and lighting displays highlighting garden features and newly installed concrete pathways. The new pathways were made possible by the generosity of Conco Companies and are part of the first phase of the Stroll Garden’s planned improvements. The new pathways increase guest safety and contribute to the Stroll Garden’s peaceful aesthetic.
Formed in 1985, the 7.5-acre Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden is the oldest attraction at the Springfield Botanical Gardens. It is an authentic representation of traditional Japanese landscape design featuring a large koi pond, moon bridge, meditation garden and tea house. The Stroll Garden is maintained through partnership with Springfield Sister Cities Association and Springfield’s sister city of Isesaki, Japan.
